Fairfax Futures is the recipient of a $5,000 Apple Federal Credit Union impact grant. These funds will be used to support next year’s Promoting Life Skills through Children’s Literature course that is offered to early childhood educators in Fairfax County. Nearly 60 educators participated in this summer’s 10-hour program where they learned how to use children’s literature to support young children’s learning experiences that promote life skills, social-emotional competencies, and mindfulness.
To learn more about key strategies that were learned in this course, we invite you to visit our YouTube Channel.

On behalf of the teachers and participants of this program, Fairfax Futures thanks Apple Federal Credit Union Foundation for making this work possible. We look forward to partnering with the Foundation in 2020 on additional workshops and new initiatives that support the county’s investment in school readiness and our future workforce.
